Harvard Referencing

Short guide to Harvard referencing based on Cite them Right

What this guide does

This guide gives a brief explanation of citations and referencing and outlines some examples of referencing that are commonly used by SGUL students.  The information in this guide is based on Cite them Right (11th edition) by Pears and Shields (2019), which is the version of Harvard that SGUL officially uses. This book contains many more types of referencing examples so if you don't find your example on this guide, use Cite them Right.  Use the online version (you will need to log in with your SGUL username and password) or find it on the library shelve at PN171 PEA.

This guide will show you how to reference:

  • Books and ebooks

  • Journals and ejournals

  • NICE Guidelines

  • Webpages

  • Information from Canvas
